    Lots Of Music Scheduled for Saturday Game
Some 3,672 Nebraska high
school musicians will partici
pate in half-time ceremonies
at the 22nd annual Band Day
The idea for Band Day was
conceived in 1934 by John
Selleck, former chancellor of
the University, and at that
time, business manager of
it atretic department.
Since then, the idea has
been cftpied by most major
universities in the nation.
Sellecfk invited 15 commun
ity bands to participate and
11 attended. During World
War II, nearly 30 bands par
ticipated, and since the war,
the number has jumped to al
most 70."
This rapid growth made it
necessary to invite each band
only once in every three
This year's festivities will
include a parade through Lin
coln in the morning and the
forming of formations during
the half-time of the Kansas
Nebraska football game In
the afternoon.
Professor Donald Lentz, di
rector of the University Band
who was in the original cere
monies in 1934, will again be
on' the field to supervise the
68 bands which have been in
vited to attend.
According to Lentz, the pa
rade will leave 10th and T
at 9:20 Saturday morning and
will arrive at 10th and O by
9:30. From there they will
travel to 14th and 0, north
to 14th and R, west to 12th and
R and return to the' stadium.
New this year will be the
formation of a seven letter
word and the playing of a
concert number during the
the half-time ceremonies.
The largest number of let
ters formed before was five,
according to Lentz.
The bands will being with
a mass formation and then
form .the word "freedom" and
sing "America the Beauti
ful." Following this, they will
return to mass formation, and
play "Pomp and Cifcum-
stance" and a march "In
vercargio." Final performance will be
the formation of an "N" to
the accompaniment of "Dear
Old Nebraska U." Twirlers
from the participating bands
will form the bar of the N.
Bands attending will be Ad-

Student Council
Hears Reports
The Student Council slowed
its pace from last week's hec
tic and controversial meeting
to a mere report of standing
One of the committee re
ports came from Dave Bliss
chairman of the Library com
Bliss noted that the exten
sion of library hours to 11
p.m. during the week "seem
to be very effective," and
that the Saturday afternoon
hours are expected to draw
more students and faculty
members. He pointed to the
90 students and faculty mem
bers who used the library
Saturday, Sept; 24.
Possible Changes
Possible changes in Love
Library include the installa
tion of book drops at the
north entrance. The books
would be picked up at 8:30
each morning to enable the
library staff to account for
the overnight reserve books
which are due at 9 a.m., Bliss
Bliss also spoke of the pos
sibility of expanding the hu
manities section of the li
brary In the future but, after
talking to library officials,
$15,000 would be needed for
books and shevles for the en
largement. v
Another possible change for
the future might be a combi
nation library-Student Union
and the establishment of an
Agriculture College library on
ag campus, Bliss reported.
Judicial Report
John Hoerner, chairman of
the Judicial committee,
pointed out that each organi
zation on campus must fol
low the stipulations set forth
by legislation of the Council
last year in order to make
the list of organizations in
good standing that will be
published November 1.
He said that any organiza
tion that does not know what
they are supposed to do may
find out by consulting the
Stufent Activities Handbook
Council. Failure to comply
with any of the regulations
Bet forth by the Council would
leave the Council free to
"freeze their funds or to denyf
them rights to use the Un
ion," Hoerner said.
"It is what the University
is, demanding of organiza
tions; we are not trying to be
tasty," Hoemer explained.
Don Epp, chairman of the
election committee, asked for
volunteers for election proe
ters for the Kosmet Klub fall
show Oct. 14 and the HellO'
Girl Dance Oct. 15.
Pub Board Interviews
The next weekly! meeting

cil room (third floor) at 1
p.m. From this group "two
or three will be picked from
the sophomore, junior and
senior classes, Neil ex
plained. The students selected
at the Sunday interviews are
then required to meet with
the Student Council Wednes
In the only new business
brought before the Council,
president Ken Tempero set
up a "remarks" period for
future meetings. Council
members are authorized to
questions at this time. Tern
pero explained that the "re
marks" should cut confusion
during the meeting caused
by conversation among the
Council members.
The all-college open house
for high school seniors "may
be dropped" if the Open
House committee decides that
such an event will be as un
successful "as it has been in
the past," Dave Myers,
chairman of the Open-House
committee said.

Loan Program A id To 883
Student loans from the Uni
versity and the National De
fense Education Act of 1958
enabled 883 students to con
tinue their education at the
University last year.
A total of $323,923 was
loaned over the 1959-1960 pe
riod, according 'to Don Pop,
assistant to the director of
University Services. This fig
ure tops the 1958-1959 loan
total of $173,402.40. .
Actual breakdown shows
the University loans made
from funds in the custody
of the Board of Regents and
loans under the custody of
the University Foundation to
taled $204,318. The remaining
$119,605 came from the Na
tional Defense Act.
"Students who plan to
make regular University
loans should come in about
two weeks before they need
the money," Pop said.
Defense Loans Largest
Applications for National
Defense loans which Pop said
"may be the best loan for
students according to the
largest amount of money
that can be borrowed" may
be turned in between Nov. 1
to Nov. 30. These loans will
not be paid until the student
has been accepted. If accept
ed now, students may have
the loan by second semester,
Pop explained.
The reason applications for
National Defense loans must
be in early is "so we can
notify students failing to
meet the requirements la
time io make other loans,"
Pop said.
He added that any student
wanting applications or in
formation about loans- should
go to rqpm 204 Administra
tion. Office Move
The Office of Student
Loans will soon move to the
basement of Administration
and become the Scholarship
and Financial Aids depart
ment Here a student not
only may apply for student
loans and scholarships but
find- student employment,
Pop pointed out.
"This is something we
needed for a long time. The
centralization of depart
ments will not only cut ad
ministrative costs but more
important, be a valuable bid
to students," Pop said.
Pace Set
For Ag
Too Slow
Scientists Needed
For Conservation
"The number of students
enrolling in agricultural col
leges is not keeping pace
with the needs of a dynamic
agriculture," according to
Dean Elvin F. Frolik.
The Ag College dean said
that one of the greatest con
tributions one can make for
the conservation of the agri
cultural resources is to en
courage many more talented
young people to enroll in ag
riculture. Agriculture needs students
to support good research on
a longtime basis, as well as
it needs to support other seg
ments of economy. But the
problem of getting good re
search is getting good agri
cultural scientists, Dean Fro
lik said.
Dean Frolik said that to
meet the needs of today, the
total farm production will
have to be increased 30 per
Agriculture must meet this
challenge. Research will be
required not only to make
new resources but to make
more effective use of the
present ones, Dean Frolik
Today 312 billion gallons of
water are used per day which
is more than twice the
amount consumed 20 years
ago. This is 60 per cent of the
available water supply. By
1975, 88 per cent of the sup
ply will be in use. That rate
of use, barring other devel
opments, "would be getting
dangerously close to the lim
it," Dean Frolik said.
Technology has increased
at a rapid rate in the last
300 years. It has brought new
land Into production and act"
yields remain fairly constant
on about the same total acre
age, Dean Frolik commented.
Now about 60 per cent farm
commodities are being pro
duced than were produced 20
years ago. Farmers and
ranchers have responded by
applying the results of re
search that have been ac
cumulating for 50 years, Dean
Frolik concluded.
In any language: Please.
The host group for the
visiting students from the
Soviet Union needs 13
tickets for the Nebraska
Army football game. If
anyone has one or more
that they will not be nslng
please contact Rod Eller
busch, GR 7-3984. The tick
ets will enable the Soviet
students to view an Ameri
can football game.
